(Convergence of an infinite product is often equated to convergence of the series of natural logs of (all but finitely many of) the factors, assuming a branch of the log for which ln(1) is 0. So probably first semester calculus at earliest -- late HS or early college. You might not run into infinite products until you take complex analysis. That would be a bit later. An amusing example is $\prod_{n=0}^{\infty}(1\;+\;z^{2^{n}})$ which converges for |z| < 1. Premultiply by 1 - z and watch what happens
